Identification of gene-phenotype relationships is a fundamental challenge in human health clinic. Based on the observation that genes causing the same or similar phenotypes tend to correlate with each other in the protein-protein interaction network, a lot of network-based approaches were proposed based on different underlying models. A recent comparative(More)
Membrane transport proteins and their substrate specificities play crucial roles in a variety of cellular functions. Identifying the substrate specificities of membrane transport proteins is closely related to the protein-target interaction prediction, drug design, membrane recruitment, and dysregulation analysis. However, experimental methods to this aim(More)
In this paper, we propose two metrics to compare DNA and protein sequences based on a Poisson model of word occurrences. Instead of comparing the frequencies of all fixed-length words in two sequences, we consider (1) the probability of 'generating' one sequence under the Poisson model estimated from the other; (2) their different expression levels of(More)
Knowledge of apoptosis proteins plays an important role in understanding the mechanism of programmed cell death. Obtaining information on subcellular location of apoptosis proteins is very helpful to reveal the apoptosis mechanism and understand the function of apoptosis proteins. Because of the cost in time and labor associated with large-scale wet-bench(More)
Predicting anticancer drug sensitivity can enhance the ability to individualize patient treatment, thus making development of cancer therapies more effective and safe. In this paper, we present a new network flow-based method, which utilizes the topological structure of pathways, for predicting anticancer drug sensitivities. Mutations and copy number(More)
Prediction of drug response based on genomic alterations is an important task in the research of personalized medicine. Current elastic net model utilized a sure independence screening to select relevant genomic features with drug response, but it may neglect the combination effect of some marginally weak features. In this work, we applied an iterative sure(More)
The prior knowledge of protein structural class may offer useful clues on understanding its functionality as well as its tertiary structure. Though various significant efforts have been made to find a fast and effective computational approach to address this problem, it is still a challenging topic in the field of bioinformatics. The position-specific score(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel artificial bee colony(ABC) algorithm for the multidimensional knapsack problems, which introduces the attraction pheromone and presents a transition strategy based on the attraction pheromone. In our algorithm, the scout generates a food source according to the transition strategy and replaces the abandoned food source by(More)
